Few artists have built as stellar a discography as Judas Priest. And now, fans will get a chance to acquire all of the band's classics in one killer package.
On January 24th, Columbia/Epic/Legacy will release the 17-CD box set, 'The Complete Albums Collection', which contains every studio and live record that featured the classic line up of Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, K.K. Downing and Ian Hill. "The Complete Albums Collection" will be available for purchase exclusively via Popmarket.com.
Included will be brand new remasters of Priest's first two albums, 1974's 'Rocka Rolla' and 1976's 'Sad Wings of Destiny' (which have never been released before as authorized remasters by the band), in addition to each individual record being packaged in a replica mini-LP sleeve reproducing that album’s original cover art. And although the 2009 live compilation, 'A Touch
of Evil…Live' is included; no other compilations will be present. Also featured in the set will be a 40-page booklet with photos, album credits, and liner notes by rock journalist/Priest fan Greg Prato.
